Because I simply agreed with points already expressed by others and I didn't 
think "+1s" would help the discussion.

This is the quote I remembered agreeing with.

And looking back at the discussion I have to admit that Bartłomiej didn't 
really argument against separate repo but expressed his desire for grsec in 
[community] instead.

I am not saying that consensus was reached because it definetely was not, but 
at the same time I also don't feel like there is any need for consensus here 
as it seems to me that this is a package just like any other.

Feedback was requested and taken into consideration, concerns were addressed 
and, as explained, this ended up being a self-contained package. If this 
results in problems that have not been considered it can be easily removed.
